It was another successful event for Souths Cares as over 550 students from five different schools in the South Sydney district attended the annual Randwick Council Football Clinic at Pioneer Park in Malabar on Thursday.
Hosted by Souths Cares, the South Sydney Rabbitohs, SEDA College and the NRL, students from Malabar Public School, Matraville Public School, St. Andrews Primary School, La Perouse Public School and South Sydney High School participated in a variety of activities throughout the day, with this year's Clinic the largest one yet.
The entire Rabbitohs first-grade squad was in attendance, with the likes of Sam Burgess, John Sutton and Cody Walker sharing their tips and tricks with the eager-to-learn students, who were visibly ecstatic to be on the field with their local heroes.
The event was another overall success, with Souths Cares further strengthening the strong relationship with Randwick Council and the schools within the region.
Randwick City Council Mayor Kathy Neilson was in full praise of the event, emphasising the importance of physical activity for young people.
